Bengaluru Court Rejects Prajwal’s Anticipatory Bail in Sexual Assault Case

Prajwal Revanna (2)

A Special Court in Bengaluru rejected the anticipatory bail plea of suspended JD(S) leader Prajwal Revanna on May 29. Revanna faces allegations of sexually abusing multiple women in a rape case.


The special court dismissed the bail application filed by his advocate Arun. Prajwal Revanna, the grandson of JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda, is accused in a rape and sexual harassment case involving a 47-year-old woman.

According to official sources, Prajwal had booked a return flight ticket from Munich to Bengaluru, expected to land in the city in the early hours of May 31.

He reportedly left for Germany on April 27, a day after the Hassan Lok Sabha segment went to polls, and is currently at large. On May 18, the Special Court for Elected Representatives had issued an arrest warrant against Prajwal Revanna following an application moved by the SIT.

However, the SIT arrested his father and JD(S) MLA H D Revanna, who is allegedly involved in kidnapping the woman. All eyes are now on Kempegowda International Airport, where Prajwal is expected to arrive on May 31, and the SIT is likely to arrest him upon landing.

Meanwhile, Prajwal’s mother Bhavani Revanna has filed an anticipatory bail in the special court for elected representatives fearing arrest in the kidnap case linked to her husband. The SIT has objected to granting anticipatory bail to her and has also sought to cancel the interim anticipatory bail issued to H D Revanna in the same case.

The anticipatory bail order for Bhavani Revanna is reserved for May 31.
